Carrying on the company’s longstanding tradition of creating inviting and artful windows for the public to view, the collaborative effort asks participants to draw their very own version of a Rainbow – a symbol of hope and the start of a new adventure – to welcome the first months of early summer.

For every city, local rainbow drawings will brighten the store’s façades in the form of stickers or digital animated screens. Paris’ Champs-Elysees store features a selection of rainbows, created by French children, across the six-window store front.

A symbol of hope. Rainbows drawn by the children of #LouisVuitton employees have appeared across store windows worldwide as colorful beacons of joy during these challenging times.

In Madrid, a Spanish child’s rainbow drawing spans the window, hovering in clouds of Louis Vuitton monograms. Other cities that have unveiled their rainbow window displays include Milan, Rome and Frankfurt.

NASA Will Pay You to Isolate Yourself for Eight Months in a Mars Simulation

nasa_animated_logo_blue_GIF-min

If social distancing hasn’t phased you at all, you might be exactly the type of person NASA is looking for for its upcoming simulation, but you must be fluent in both English ànd Russian.

Thanks to proximity and relatively similar conditions as Earth, Mars has long been on the list of planets humans are endeavoring to visit, if not colonize. At the same time, since the birth of the Space Force, the U.S. has also expressed its intentions to return to the Moon.

The research will be conducted to study the effects of isolation and confinement as participants work to successfully complete their simulated space mission.

NASA

Working towards these two goals, NASA is now recruiting people for an isolation simulation, where a crew of supposed spacefarers will spend eight months locked in a fake spaceship, using virtual reality and carrying out different assigned tasks. In particular, they’re searching for healthy, non-smaking candidates aged between 30 and 55 who are fluent in both English and Russian – as the simulation will take place in Moscow – and must have either at least a Bachelor’s degree or have completed military officer training. Of course, those selected will also be compensated financially.

For those interested in participating, you can head over to NASA’s page to learn more. Come into the beautiful world of NASA.

Lets Talks About the Future

Courrèges-Imaginary-Colognes-Flacons-01-min

Fashion designer André Courrèges was particularly known for his streamlined 1960s designs influenced by modernism and futurism, exploiting modern technology and new fabrics. Courrèges defined the go-go boot. The original go-go boots, as defined by André Courrèges in 1964, were white, low-heeled, and mid-calf in height, a specific style which is sometimes called the Courrèges boot. Along with Mary Quant, is one of the designers credited with inventing the miniskirt.

The New York Times described him as ‘The brightest blaze of the year’. to emphasis the change from the little black dress to the white dress. Designers such as Pierre Cardin and Paco Rabanne taking influences towards ‘Future’ fashion looks. With new popularity, his designs trickled down to mass production companies that created affordable designs similar to Courrèges.

He paired his shorter skirts with white or colored leather, iconic calf-high boots that added a confident flair to the ensemble. This look became one of the most important fashion developments of the decade and was widely copied. Accessories were inspired by astronauts equipment such as; goggles, helmets and flat boots. White and metallic colour ways were implemented to emphasise the futuristic collection. He utilised unconventional materials such as metal, plastic and PVC which was unusual for couture ateliers.

 

Courrèges-Imaginary-Colognes-Visual-02-min

Already in 1997 Maison Courrèges dreamed up the perfume 2020, which was drawn in floral, fruity and woody lines, revolving around a note of frosted pear. The iconic fashion house of the sixties today renews its futuristic verve, to bring us to a future tinged with audacity and freedom.

With the new line Colognes Imaginaires, Courrèges projects us into the future. True to its avant-garde soul, the French Maison still dares to imagine an optimistic future, through a range of colognes filled with a positive spirit.

Courrèges 2030 Verbena Crush

Courrèges-Imaginary-Colognes-2030-Verbena-Crush

Created by perfumer Mylène Alran, 2030 Verbena Crush, is undoubtedly the one that fits most in the ‘cologne’ universe, with its citrus and aromatic notes. Zooming in on the green and tart nuances of verbena, whose essential oil inevitably evokes the scent of lemon, the scent brings some herbaceous touches, as well. Alran dreamed of a future tinged with serenity, so she embroidered her composition around a crumpled verbena leaf (whose soothing properties are known). Orange and lemon brighten it with a zesty and luminous effect, and some herbaceous notes stretch the greenness of the plant, carried by hedione to dress it with an aerial transparency. In the background, the musks imbue the perfume with a comfortable and padded suppleness. A scent of soft and sparkling freshness.

 

Courrèges 2040 Nectar Tonka

Courrèges-Imaginary-Colognes-2040-Nectar-Tonka

On the opposite side of the olfactive map, 2040 Nectar Tonka foresees a warm future, with its slightly gourmand oriental notes. Still a ‘light’ fragrance – we stay in the ‘cologne’ style – perfumer Benoist Lapouza put the round and almondy notes of tonka bean center stage, hemmed with vanilla and enriched with some woody and spicy touches (pepper, cinnamon) to complete the picture. A fairly dense and textured feeling emerges from the whole, which will appeal to lovers of enveloping ‘colognes’.

 

Courèges 2050 Berrie Flash

Courrèges-Imaginary-Colognes-2050-Berrie-Flash

Since the future will have plants, or there won’t be a future at all, perfumer Nicolas Beaulieu portrayed it with green, sparkling, fruity notes. 2050 Berrie Flash reveals itself under a lively, sparkling flight, which gives pride of place to juniper berries. This very uplifting sensation, underlined with some spicy touches of cardamom and nutmeg, is placed around a bay leaf note with vegetal accents. The blackcurrant bud brings up all of its green and fruity nuances, and a few rose and geranium touches are outlined in the background, resting on a wooded bed. An at once powerful and mutinous ‘cologne’.

 

Courrèges 2060 Cedar Pulp

Courrèges-Imaginary-Colognes-2060-Cedar-Pulp

Created by Fanny Bal, the perfumer is hoping to ‘be surprised’ by the omens of a distant future, a feeling she conveys pretty successfully with 2060 Cedar Pulp. Behind the name with a woody and sparkling universe hides a ‘cologne’ that’s rather soft and powdery at first. It has green, herbaceous (basil) nuances that dress up an almond-like opening of heliotropin. The ‘sweet almond’ effect is quite realistic, while being treated with finesse in the balancing of the composition. The cedar brings strength and structure to the whole, while the musks end up rounding the contours with softness and suppleness. This powdery composition, twisted with green and woody notes, arises between classicism and modernity.

The Colognes Imaginaires Collection is ready for the future. Te range is built from organic and recyclable materials (organic beet alcohol, biodegradable wooden covers, resourceable glass, recyclable paper case, etc.), and the ingredients of natural origin that are used in the formulas come from sustainable sources.

Courrèges Colognes Imaginaires are available as 100ml at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Courrèges.

 

 

 

L’Oréal Paris Announces Search for Stories of Women of Worth Making an Impact

LOreal Paris Women of Worth LogoL’Oréal Paris, the #1 global beauty brand, launches the 15th year of its signature philanthropic platform, Women of Worth. The program searches for, honors and champions women who selflessly give back to their communities and build the worth of others every day. Over the past 14 years, L’Oréal Paris has honored 140 women with a combined $1.8 million, amplified their worthy causes and provided them with a national platform to share their stories to make an even greater impact in the lives of others.

Now more than ever, L’Oréal Paris continues to be wholly dedicated to these women, believing that in a time of crisis, it is crucial to give support to those who give so much of themselves to help the most vulnerable among us. In the spirit of its iconic tagline, ‘Because You’re Worth It’, L’Oréal Paris today announces the call for its 2020 Women of Worth nominations to the public at WomenofWorth.com.

Now through Tuesday, June 30, 2020, nominate a woman who is leading a non-profit organization that is making a difference in her community for the chance to become one of the 10 Women of Worth 2020 Honorees and receive up to $35,000 in donations. Additionally, Americans are asked to share the story of a woman who is truly inspirational in her work on the front lines in the fight against coronavirus. L’Oréal Paris will honor one of these Covid-19 Women of Worth throughout the program.

L’Oréal Paris’ Women of Worth program has always been focused on elevating everyday women who dedicate their lives to serving their communities. Today, their work addressing a wide range of vulnerable populations is more important than ever. L’Oréal Paris has a unique ability to give these women and their causes a national platform, helping to elevate their stories and bring additional resources to underserved communities. We are proud of the 140 women we have honored to date and are humbled to be able to honor even more women this year. They are examples of the change that can happen when we believe that we are all worth it.

Ali Goldstein, L’Oréal Paris USA President

In addition to receiving financial support for her organization, L’Oréal Paris provides each of the Women of Worth with a platform for her story, and the opportunity to build a network that amplifies her cause and makes an even greater impact. The 2020 Honorees will join the 140 Women of Worth alumnae, who stand for a diverse range of causes and inspirational stories. From a survivor of conversion therapy who is teaching women in similar situations how to cope and thrive, to a teenager tackling hunger and homelessness in her community, the multifaceted Women of Worth are embracing their worth and instilling it within others.

Since 2005, L’Oréal Paris has partnered with Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, to orchestrate the call for nominations and welcome Honorees within the fold as shining examples of how giving back can truly change the world. Each of the Women of Worth will receive $10,000. One National Honoree, selected by popular vote, will be awarded an additional $25,000 for her work. All 2020 Honorees will be recognized and celebrated later this year.
